In my mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren in which you share the books you added to your collection in the past week.
This week I went a little library crazy thanks to Chachic and her Queen's Thief Week:

Book cover of The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

Book cover of A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner

I picked up all of Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief series.

Along with: 
Magic Bites - Ilona Andrews
Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins...it was on so many Top 10 Audiobook suggestion lists, I had to go this route!
Tempest - Julie Cross
Where She Went - Gayle Forman...Forman is presenting at a library conference I'm attending in two weeks, so excited!
Austenland - Shannon Hale...had to read it before the new one comes out!

I also picked up two new galleys from NetGalley:

Midnight in Austenland - Shannon Hale...so excited for this after finishing Austenland!
Shadows on the Moon - Zoë Marriot...a Japanese Cinderella retelling that I've been highly anticipating.

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. Tempest and Anna and the French Kiss are both fabulous :) Happy reading.

    1. I started listening to Anna yesterday. The narrator is kinda annoying me, but I only had about 15 minutes to listen, so I'm hoping she'll get better. That or I'll have to switch to the book.

  2. I do hope you like the MWT books! The Thief is slightly different in feel, and reads rather younger, than the others...so if it doesn't quite do it for you, do keep going!

    1. I loved The Thief, but I'm halfway through Queen of Attolia and am loving that even more! It does seem to grow up quite a bit, to the point that I would hesitate to even label it 'YA' anymore (though that may just be in my head since we don't have an age for Eugenides which I LOVE).

    2. I'm so glad you're loving them! Did you see the comment MWT left at one of Chachic's post about the ages, and how she deliberatly chose not to make it clear?

    3. Yes! I loved that she purposely left things up to the readers. Such a great philosophy.

  3. The Tempest sounds amazing! Can't wait to read it. Hope you enjoy it!
    Happy reading!

    A Beautiful Madness

    1. Yes! I love time travel, so I am very excited to read this one.

  4. The Queen's Thief series sounds right up my alley - thanks for sharing. I'll have to check it out. Anna is one of my favorites and I can't wait to read Tempest. Great books this week! Happy Reading. Megan @ Read It, See It

    1. Thanks! You should check out The Queen's Thief series, and if you ever need more convincing, check out the posts from Chachic's Queen's Thief Week. There were amazing guest posts all around, you just have to be wary of spoilers. =)

  5. Great set! Yay for Anna! I really want to read Meghan Whalen Turner's books.

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping to get more into Anna this week, everyone seems to adore it.

  6. Tempest was good and of course Anna is AMAzing. I *still* haven't read If I Stay though all I've heard is good things. Hopefully I'll get around to it eventually :P
    Happy reading :]

    1. Yeah...If I Stay is one of those books you don't really get 'in the mood' for. It's really heavy, though it is absolutely wonderful. I'm not sure I'd have gotten to it if I weren't prompted by the opportunity to meet Gayle Forman.

  7. Anna has been sitting on my shelf FOREVER! I really need to get around to reading that one :)

    Anna @ Literary Exploration

    1. I put it on my list for the Completely Contemp Challenge this year, which is prompting me to read it!

  8. new follower .. looks like you got some great reads this week I have heard good things about Anna and the French Kiss. her is my IMM if you wanna follow back http://totallybookedsolid.blogspot.com/2012/01/imm.html

  9. Tempest is awesome! Hope you enjoy all of your books! You can see what I got in my mailbox here.

  10. I have had Anna & Tempest forever it seems. I must make personal challenge so i stop ignoring the older TBR books for the newer ones. I feel bad but new books come out & I get like a kid at Christmas.
    I want to read them all but end up reading none.lol. Well, I do read some.
    Happy reading this week :)

  11. I sampled Anna as an audiobook and so was not impressed with the narrator - I found her whiney. I LOVED the book, though, when I read it!

    Enjoy and happy reading!

  12. Yay, you were able to grab all the Queen's Thief books! I hope you love The Queen of Attolia and The King of Attolia, those are my favorites in the series. Thanks for dropping by to read the posts for Queen's Thief Week and leave comments even when you haven't finished reading all the books. Most of the posts have been spoiler-free anyway (if you gotten to that part with the romance, you know how hard it is to avoid spoilers for that!)

    I hope you like Magic Bites too. The Kate Daniels series is my favorite urban fantasy series.

  13. Hi there! :)

    I'm a HUGE fan of Stephanie Perkins's books, and Anna and the French Kiss is DEFINITELY a favorite. Though, I'm really curious about that audiobook. It'd probably be yummy to hear Etienne St. Clair's voice;)

    The emotion in Tempest really stayed with me and that's even more true for Where She Went.

    Have an amazing reading week!

  14. I NEED to read Tempest and Anna and the French Kiss. I hear that they are both really awesome books!

    I thought Where She Went was really awesome. :D Enjoy your weekend!

  15. Where She Went was amazing! I really liked that one!

    I also need to read Anna and Tempest! They both look so, so wonderful!
